Questions and Answers

Dodge Stratus Blower Motor Resistor

Q. I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus ES sedan 2.7 liter V-6 and automatic transmission. The blower on the HVAC runs in the two highest settings, but does not work in the lower two. I have checked the service manual, TSB and internet and can not find these exact symptoms. All I can find states that if the blower works in the highest setting and not the lower three it is the resistor.

I have already checked the fuse, I can only find one documented for the HVAC and the wiring harness to the control switch to insure a good connection since I had a after market stereo installed and wanted to insure the connection was not knocked loose. Could it be the resistor, blower motor or something else? I would be grateful for any suggestions you may have.

Thank you,
Ed

A. It is still very possible you have a bad blower motor resistor. As you can see in the wiring diagram below, any one of the resistors can burn out resulting in inoperative speed levels.

In this case the resistor between the second and third speed is bad. The blower motor resistor is located in the passenger compartment on the lower side of the HVAC housing.
